Are these low-life gangqueers delusional? They think they "own" El Paso. They probably "own" their own little run down streets and neighborhoods in a small part of the city. But come on, I lived there for 22 years and these bums never affected my life or anybody I ever knew. I wish these dudes would have tried to "own" our side of town. They would have gotten a severe a**whippin'!

They need to take these scumbags to Saudi Arabia and have their heads taken off. Would save us a lot of money.

Police exagerate the influence of the BA's.

Police try to paint everyone with the same broad brush to highten their own sense of importance.

Often the police say a person is a BA member just to make it worse for that suspect.

There are no weapons of mass destuction in El Paso.

Don't be fooled by police claims!

I don't know about them involved in politics but they defiitley are a street/prison gang. They need to invest in a senator, funny the city that brought them together in prisons is shunning them now. I don't judge people for what thy do, life is a trip

These punks are nothing but cowards. The City of El Paso needs to make an example of these punks. Send them away and throw away the key. What a waste of oxygen these pieces of SH** are.

What a bunch of punks! This gang started out in hopes of protecting El Paso residents imprisoned in jails across Texas from other Texas inmates into a complete and power hungry organization. It has been said that if you were to ever quarell with one of these BA "members" out in the streets of El Paso, it is thought of an attack on the whole gang itself, and thus more than one of them can come out and harm you. My own nextdoor neighbor had such a conflict which resulted in his home having a "drive-by" done by some of these as.h...s. They are also known to deny their involvement with the gang itself if ever asked by anyone-including the cops themselves-out in the street. For the safety of all El Pasoans they should be kept in jail and away from society. If however this is not possible the police should @ least let the citizens of EL Paso know who they are (much like the child molesters) so that everyone who wishes so can try and avoid them.

More links and information on the Bario Azteca Gang with ties to Mexico.

Bario Azteca Gang [ties to Mexico]
http://samuellogan.blogspot.com/2008/01/barri...

Another site on them and Mexico connection
The Barrio Azteca gang started in the southwest Texas prison system and quickly spread to the streets of El Paso and the prison system in *Ciudad Juarez, across the border. Linked to the Carrillo-Fuentes drug trafficking organization, also known as the Juarez Cartel, this gang is exemplary of how powerful organized criminal groups in Mexico outsource their security and dirty work to local gangs.
close quote:
Now we must understand if any of these people are here illegally, that any form of a "path to citizenship" will include them. They can Only be exculded IF they HAVE BEEN CONVICTED.

I do not defend these guys, but not one of you would have the testicles to go one on one, no weapons, with a member of the gang so STFU with your poor attempt at machismo - these hardend thugs are not the local bald headed wimps you see at the mall.

COuldn't agree more with the pimp. It's so easy to hide behind a computer and talk smack about this gang. Step up to one of them and see who's laughing. I guarantee that it won't be you people.

Actually, the Barrio Azteca chumps usually don't go one on one either. Nomally it's two on one or they take out a piece if they've bitten off more than they can chew. I've seen it many times during my stint as a beat cop.

I see that eddie crybaby is back online - your comments make me wonder if you ever were a cop. Any jailhouse lawyer would tell you that impersonating a cop is a serious crime you knucklehead. Anyways, if you were a cop didn't you sissy boys work on the same concept. i.e Radio: Unit 23 (200lb 6ft cop) needs assistance beating down a 90lb cholo, call out the boy the the local VI (village inn) and come help beat down this thug. eddie blog me when you grow some testicles - where's my money b1tch!
